Give walkers and cyclists a tunnel

THIS is an open letter to Mansfield District Council: Is there any chance of getting Lottery or Euro funding to put a tunnel under Windsor Road, Mansfield, where the bridge used to be?

I’m sure cyclists and walkers using The Timberland Trail would appreciate the safety and convenience of not having to cross this very busy main road as we have had to do since the old bridge was filled in.

The road at this point doesn’t even offer a mid-way refuge to make it that bit easier and safer for kids and humans to cross.

Nothing too fancy, just an ample sized concrete pipe with strip lighting should suffice.

Anthony W. Allsop,

Little Barn Lane,
